Signs of wear

Wood floors are a popular decorative feature. If you already have one, the signs that it is past its best may include cracks. These not only look unsightly but can also trap dirt and moisture, allow mites and insects to lurk, and generally lead to greater problems.

Hardwood floors are often refinished by sanding and recoating. This can be done several times over a floor’s lifetime; however, if a floor has been sanded too many times, you might notice movement in the boards as you walk on them or that gaps start to become larger. It also becomes harder to remove dents and marks.

The right replacement

When replacing a floor, you should ensure that whatever you buy has a long life. Laying engineered flooring from a stockist such as will give you many years of life, so you won’t have to replace it again for a long time.

Leaving a damaged or worn floor for too long before you do something about it will only make things worse. Cracks and gaps will become more pronounced over time and make your floor look even more shabby. It is worth getting a replacement as soon as you spot that your existing floor is past its best.
